Rhythm Changes Jazz Now! postponed

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic we have decided to postpone the seventh Rhythm Changes conference Jazz Now! to next year, most likely 26-29 August 2021, in Amsterdam. We fear that in the coming months many delegates will have difficulties making travel arrangements; we also expect that the end of the current academic year and the start of the next will require many delegates to be in their posts by the end of August. Given the circumstances, we will circulate the CfP again this fall.

Best wishes, and stay healthy!

…and now for our Rhythm Changes bags!

Of course, delegates come to our conferences for the intellectual exchange with other researchers. Since Rhythm Changes hosts the largest jazz conferences in the academic field, there is a lot of inspiring banter. But the second best reason to be part of these events are the totally cool collectible retro bags we hand out to the delegates. Keep an eye out for this year’s design, presented here soon!
